Three Elwood men are behind bars in Hamilton County accused of stealing copper wire.

Fishers police say 23-year-old Brad Stewart, 19-year-old Kyle Stewart, and 23-year-old Justin Rominger stole four bundles of wire from a Duke Energy truck parked in the Don Hinds Ford parking lot.

A passing motorist spotted the men loading something into a car and called police.

Officers stopped the men on Allisonville Road north of 146th Street. Two bundles of wire were found at the scene.

Investigators think the other two were thrown out of the car.
